We are continuously working to maintain and improve the water system. Some of the major projects we are currently working on involve the installation of new, or the replacement of existing, equipment and facilities needed to provide safe, reliable water service.
A water main replacement project is scheduled to begin in June on Brookside Drive and is expected to be completed by mid-September. Final paving will then be scheduled in coordination with the Town of Greenwich.
The project, which will replace approximately 2300 feet of water main, is part of an ongoing program to improve Aquarion’s water distribution system and to ensure the highest quality water. The upgrades will also help to reduce leaks and water main breaks that can cause service interruptions.
During the construction, there will be lane closures required on Brookside Drive. These closures will be in effect only during the expected working hours of 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM. The detour routes will be clearly identified during the closures. The road will however be accessible to local traffic only.
The proposed detours are detailed as follows:
Throughout the project, signage will be used for detouring traffic. Uniformed traffic control officers or flag persons will be utilized only as needed. As listed above, the detour will vary by section, one section north of East Putnam Avenue and one section South of East Putnam Avenue.
